Earth Day 2024

The Earth Day 2024 event will be held from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm on Saturday, April 20th at the REACH Museum in the Tri-Cities. The event is a partnership with Sustainable Tri-Cities, the Tri-Cities Chapter of Citizens Climate Education, Battelle Memorial Institute, Ben-Franklin Transit, Bechtel, and the REACH. Thanks to a grant from Battelle, all of the REACH Museum is rented for the day so that admission is free to everyone.

This year’s theme is THE EARTH STILL NEEDS OUR HELP. WE CAN DO THIS! The goal is to engage all ages in celebrating our relationship with our beautiful planet, by exploring environmental solutions and how we can work collectively to care for our one planet.

Earth-care “Tri-Talks” will be presented by the BF Counties Action Plan Working Group, Pacific NW National Laboratory, Marcus Whitman Elementary School, and Kids for Urban Trees.

Local organizations with relevant missions will be present to inform and provide a variety of activities, including Sustainable Tri-Cities. Learn about Urban Heat Resilience and what we are doing locally, transportation solutions, recycling, and ways to be an advocate for change.

Live music will be provided by the Washington Old Time Fiddlers, Chainsaw and the Fine Particulates, and JAK. Fast and Curryous, Lucky Bao and Kona Ice Food trucks will be available.

The Mid-Columbia Electric Vehicle association event will provide a wide selection of EV’s including e-bikes and cargo bikes, and the chance to learn more from the owners.

All forms of eco-friendly travel, like taking the bus, walking, biking, rolling, and ride-sharing, are encouraged. The REACH Museum is located at 1943 Columbia Park Trail, Richland, WA.
